So much prettier than a lawn.
In our latest lawn-to-drought-garden makeover from readers, a South Pasadena lawn is removed and replaced with UC Verde buffalo grass ( Bouteloua gracilis ), natives and drought-tolerant plants. Layered plantings and giant pavers transform the front yard into a tranquil escape.

+Gideon Brontë You seem like a fickle client! :-) I got enough of those, lol..

I just like the idea of lower inputs (water, fertlilizers, gas, etc.) to maintain these types of gardens. They're also very well-designed as well, not simply a mini cow-pasture.

Love this tiny, sunny guest cottage.
When architects Bo Sundius and Hisako Ichiki decided to build a guest cottage on their property in Elysian Park, they wanted the scale of a loft but the feel of a cabin.

8 heat-resistant plants that do well in summer.
Although fall is planting season in Southern California, summer is the best time to see how plants survive the heat.

Even beds are organic now.

We tag along with French designer Christian Louboutin as he shops the Rose Bowl Flea Market: http://lat.ms/29OyouI

A dilapidated Spanish home is reborn as an indoor-outdoor retreat.
When Vanessa Bradley and Michel Bocande had an opportunity to tour the Minarc-designed Appleton house in Venice several years ago, they walked away knowing they had found a template for the way they wanted to live.
